Earth Web Media’s Web of Life Animist Church seeks those who feel called by their ancestors to learn the unique skills needed to become Animist Soul Medic Practitioners in the Web of Life tradition*, in service to Earth Honoring People in their communities.
*The Web of Life Tradition- We are all connected by, and an equal thread in, the Sacred Web of Life. Earth Web Media (a legal Animist “Church”) trains and empowers Earth Honoring People of all Genders, Cultures, and Bio=Regions who are called by their Ancestors to practice the intuitive and shamanic healing arts on behalf of other People in their communities. Together we create a sacred bridge to harmony within and between Humans, Non-Human Beings in all forms, and the Spirits of Earth and beyond. We have the wisdom within us, we are ready to remember.
Do you know that there is a sacred Web of Life, and that you are a part of it? You are an Animist !
Earth Honoring People are coming together, and accepting their Animist Nature. Animists have special needs. It is time to train more Earth Honoring People to tend to these needs within themselves, and to be able to hold space for others.
The dominant culture has been detrimental, dangerous and deadly to Mystics, Intuitives, Blended Spirits, Witches and Healers of the diverse Peoples around the world commonly called Shamanic, Animist and Pagan. Many have been made to believe they are crazy, wrong, weird or evil for hearing the Earth Spirits and the Ancestors. As we remember who we are and the necessity of our medicine skills for a sick world, we are called to heal our soul wounds and competently train ourselves in the ways available to us. In the Web of Life Animist tradition, teachings and guidance come from Human teachers, as well as Nature Spirits, Non-Physical Teachers and Ancestors.
Calling those walking the nature, shamanic, atheist, witch and pagan paths who have been called by the ancestors to be a Soul Medic for your community. You are already intuitively doing this work, so we ask you to step into the role more consciously and carefully. Animist Soul Medics are needed to tend the spiritual needs of our Earth Loving, Pagan, Animist, Witch and Queer communities. Empaths, Sensitives, Energy Workers, Healers, your gifts are needed now, so be clear about your role and how to tend yourself while you work with Earth honoring People who are seeking you.
Words that matter
*”Animism” (from Latin animus, -i “soul, life“) is the worldview that non-human entities (animals, plants, and inanimate objects or phenomena) possess a spiritual essence and that we all live together in a Sacred Web of Life. See our Statement of Beliefs here.
*”Animist”- One who knows they are a part of the sacred Web of Life
Animist Soul Medic- . An Animist who is committed to utilizing their skills to hold sacred space for their Earth Honoring Kin using peer-to-peer tools (see below). An Animist Soul Medic is capable of holding space for those in need of spiritual support due to living in the dominant culture and in challenging life situations. Trained Animist Soul Medics utilize spiritual tools and ceremonies for clearing and balancing within Self and Communities.
*We use the words “shamanic” healing arts to describe the intuitive and visionary tools, available to all cultures, that help to guide us in this living world. Included are the shamanic journey, revelation through trance, divination, dreams, intuition and dialog with “Nature”. There are many varieties and faces of these practices, yet similar threads run through cultures of the Human tribes. In our FULL CIRCLE practice, while guidance and training is handed down to us by our living human elders, we are taught the specifics of our personal practice by the guides and ancestors through our connection to our shamanic and dreaming mind.
Outline of Program:

*This Training emphasizes our Animist worldview and shamanic understanding, including offering respect and being open to communication with: animals, elements, plants, trees, spirit world, dream world, intuition, ancestors, spirit guides, other humans, and sacred self.
